Re: Again: Juno or Polysix?

I've had my Juno-6 for a few days now, and I love it! :D It's really easy to use, and it sounds greater than I expected. It's fatter (even without chorus) and more versatile than I expected from the videos I have seen. I guess I'm still a bit overwhelmed (this is my first hands-on synth), but I won'...

Re: Again: Juno or Polysix?

I've noticed on a picture that there are three outputs on the Juno-6; left, right and phones (stereo). Is there any problem in using the phones output as line out? (I only have a 6.3mm stereo cable laying around :P) From what I read it seems that the output level switch only affects the left/right o...

Re: Again: Juno or Polysix?

By the way, does anyone know if the Juno-6 has a multi-tap transformer that I can change from 110V to 220/240V? The one I bought is a US model. I know that the Juno-106 has it (and perhaps the Juno-60?) Step-down transformers aren't really that expensive, but it would be nice if I didn't have to bu...

Re: Again: Juno or Polysix?

Given the choice of Polysix or Juno, for me its Polysix every time. I had a Juno 6, a good learning synth, but its samey sound eventually made me hate it. The P6 is a more transparent/individual synth and sounds so much nicer. The Juno these days, to me has become a bit of a cliche synth. It seems ...

Re: Again: Juno or Polysix?

Thanks everyone, I have now made my decision. A Juno-6 is now (or soon) on the way to me :) As I said in an earlier post, I think it will suit me perfectly as my first analog synth. It seems to have a clean and simple layout. It doesn't have any memory, but I don't think that will be too irritating....

Re: Again: Juno or Polysix?

Better in what way? (And do you mean better than the Prophet or the Polysix?) The disadvantage of asking on a forum such as this, is that people have strong opinions about these things :P From what I've hard, I must admit that the Junos and the Polysix sound warmer and nicer to me, and this is mainl...

Re: Again: Juno or Polysix?

Thanks, I think I understand. :) I'm starting to think that the Prophet 600 will be ideal as my first analog synth. It has a lot of features, and it's cheaper than any of the others (that have been serviced and checked. I won't even consider auctions by the typical "I HAVE TESTED THIS A FEW YEARS AG...

Re: Again: Juno or Polysix?

Interesting! What I fear about the Prophet 600 is that is isn't as capable of sounding lush and warm as the Junos or the Polysix are. It has been described in many places as being very versatile, but not very good for more lush and etheral sounds (and above, as being more aggressive.) I'll be using ...

Re: Again: Juno or Polysix?

Thanks for the comments and advice so far! Although, I must say it hasn't made my decision much clearer. Of course, all of the synths mentioned are great in their own way, and if I had enough money, I'd buy them all. :P I haven't really even considered (or even read much about) the Prophet 600 befor...

Again: Juno or Polysix?

Hi. I'm buying my first vintage synth, and I've come to (like many others it seems) a choice between the Roland Juno series and the Korg Polysix. First of all, I'm quite a newbie when it comes to synth programming, but I find it very interesting, and I think those synths will give me the ideal combi...
